  • About the artwork

    (This work is framed)
    A concept used on my work after 2010, is the idea of showing the picture window. I use figurative elements, particularly the landscape. Above those figurative elements, I superimpose “abstracts” geometric shapes; sometimes it is seen in the landscape and simultaneosly in other spacial shape in front of the landscape, like if it was in an inner space and through a window we could see the outer space. That’s very close to Magritte’s art “Cuadros ventana”(“Windows-pictures”).

    Another concept is my interest in mixed opposite concepts, such figurative/abstract, classical/contemporary, paint reality/ photography/reality.

    During the last years I have started to introduce new forms such as curves and printing frames. I have also begun introducing the written language in my work well using two different languages to express an idea or concept.

Francisco Nicolás

Spain

Translation in progress

Since his childhood, he already showed a great interest in the visual arts. In his youth, he left his hometown, to move to Barcelona, doing studies and obtaining his degree in the Faculty of Fine Arts of Barcelona, combining with the learning of the engraving technique at Le Ecole Nationale et Superiore des Beaux Arts in Paris.

He began his exhibition career in Barcelona at the hand of Alejandro Sales Art Gallery, since then made numerous national and international exhibitions, and having resided in London for the past six years.

In Francisco Nicolás, there is one common way in his whole art career. The dual concept is very present in his artwork since the very beginning.

During 80/90's Francisco's work was inspired on the neoplasticism, but far away of the cold concept of this, he mixed the coldness of the geometrical abstraction with a mild expressionism.

Between 2010/2011, after 10 years without painting, he started a new process mixing the landscape with geometrical shapes, mixing opposite concepts such as the figurative /abstract or classical /contemporary.

In 2016, the process of Francisco Nicolás came to an end because his art practice can be considered as a research process, where I do research about the relationship between different shapes and concepts.

The old practice was over, therefore he started a new one using only abstract elements and mixing both opposite concepts like the geometry and the expresionism showing up the idea of mixing both opposite concepts in the Art History (the Apollonian and the Dyonisiac).

And currently, he has added a figurative element like the birds interacting each other.
